This gooey chocolate pudding cake is a snap to mix and cook in the slow cooker. Top it off with whipped cream or serve it warm with a scoop of ice cream and some extra fudge sauce.

For a larger slow cooker, use a casserole dish or souffle dish that will fit in the crock. Just cover and bake the cake in the slow cooker as directed.


  • 1 package chocolate cake mix (2-layer size)
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 1 package instant chocolate pudding (6-ounce)
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil*
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup water

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Grease the crock pot interior or spray with non-stick spray.

  3. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until well blended; transfer to the slow cooker.

  4. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours. Do not lift the lid.

  5. Serve warm with ice cream.


Try this with low-fat cake mix and sour cream. It is VERY rich, so be sure to have some ice cream in the house. A little goes a long way. Keeps in the fridge for a while. Just heat and serve."

*Use a neutral-flavored oil in the cake, such as canola, safflower, or corn oil.
